Jenkins Signs are very proud that our traditional skills and experience are being used to produce signs for the renovations under the Cardigan Townscape Heritage Initiative Scheme.
Rediscovering Our Town's Identity
As an ancient Welsh cultural and commercial centre, the largely unspoilt townscape of Cardigan has much offer as a vibrant trading and tourist hub. Cardigan Townscape Heritage Initiative aims to aid the conservation of the town's unique architectural landscape by providing funding for the renovation of business and retail buildings, alongside the improvement of local facilities and gap sites helping to reinstate Cardigan's importance as an economic, historic and cultural centre in West Wales.
Striving for an Economically Sustainable Future
With grants contributing to restoration costs, the Cardigan Townscape Heritage makes refurbishing properties to their built heritage economically viable. We also provide expert advice on preserving a building's original features of a building, utilising traditional building techniques and materials and ensuring its unity with the surrounding architecture - all paramount to increasing its market value.
Since the THI scheme was introduced five years ago, over sixty properties have received Town Heritage Initiative or Town Improvement Grants, with more applications being dealt with on a weekly basis. In today's competitive environment, creating an attractive, individual town centre is key to an economically stable and sustainable future for Cardigan.
"Signage on historic buildings is something out of the ordinary that requires much more thought to get it right. Added to this, is our unique Welsh heritage and language. Derek at Jenkins Signs understands all of these extra implications and has consistently delivered excellent results. I am particularly pleased with the numerous hanging signs he has designed and manufactured which are now adding to the distinctiveness of Cardigan town."
